That's all the time I had.
I had deadlines.
So, I got busy!
Looking back, I can't believe I accomplished all that I did.
I returned from the quilting retreat at the Missouri Star Quilt Company on Tuesday, June 7. I had plane tickets to leave for San Francisco on Thursday, June 16. The days in between were filled with hours of sewing. I had a number of projects I wanted to take to San Francisco.
I made two reversible sunsuits for the granddaughter.
The wrap style top has an embroidered critter on each side.
I love the iguana on the top picture -
just like in the wild, he blends in with the flowers!
The granddaughter celebrated her first birthday while we were in San Francisco.
She is a little monkey,
so the sunsuit is perfect!
Some place I read about a simple table runner made from 2 1/2" strips of fabric,
sewn together, cut apart at different points, and then sewn back together.
This was a gift for my son and daughter-in-law.
This table runner in bright spring colors was a gift for my step-mother.
The top of it was completed, I just had
to piece the backing, quilt it, and finish the binding so I could take it over to her house.
While I was at the Missouri Star Quilt Company I picked up some
"Charm" packs - bundles of 5" square fabric.
The colors were perfect for making a throw
as a 94th Birthday present for my mother-in-law.
I had the piecing completed before I left for California,
and in the two days between that trip and Mr. Dreamy's trip
to Florida, I put the border on, quilted the throw and bound it.
Another gift finished!
It's been a busy time.
